Education is the answer to all problems. Whether it's poverty, turmoil, or a lack of progress. The only path to solving all of these issues is education. Today, January 24, is also a very momentous day for the entire planet. AS International Education Day is observed on this day. Lets us tell you why we celebrate Education Day and what it's all about...
In 2018, the United Nations General Assembly declared the 24th of January to be the International Day of Education every year. This ruling was quickly adopted by more than 50 countries. Since then, this date has been observed as International Education Day all around the world.
The main goal of marking this day as International Education Day is to raise awareness about the value of education around the world. Peace and development are the most vital aspects of human life, and education is the only means of achieving them. The goal of commemorating this day is to ensure that everyone, including children, has access to free and basic education as soon as possible. On this day, celebrations are held all around the world. Learning, Innovation, and Financing are the three key themes. Education plays a very vital and crucial role in our daily life.
"Changing Courses - Transforming Education" is the title for International Education Day in 2022. The reason for this is that, in light of the impact on the education sector during the last two years, it is necessary to refocus on measures to make education more freely accessible to all. The theme of this year's event was "Recover and Revitalize Education for the Covid-19 Generation," which was carried out last year. We need to update our education system so that it leads to development.
According to UNESCO, no country will be able to achieve gender equality and break the cycle of poverty that is leaving millions of children, youth, and adults behind without inclusive and equitable quality education and lifelong opportunities for all. In light of this, this year's International Education Day will highlight all of the significant reforms that can help to establish everyone's fundamental right to education. These developments also include a technology-driven digital transformation that has increased access to education for the world's 258 million children and youth who have yet to enter school.
The objective of bringing education to every home in the world appears to be a long way off. Millions of youngsters continue to be denied access to a good education. Although the internet has aided in this area to some level, there are still numerous regions where it is not available. Various figures show that millions of children around the world still do not attend school. Despite the fact that millions of children attend school, there is a chronic dearth of quality education. At the same time, a big number of children's schooling is cut in half. To address all of these issues, the primary goal of International Education Day is to find a solution.
